DreddLater this year, Dredd is coming out.
Based, perhaps obviously, on world-famous British comic anthology 2000AD's regular and highly-popular Judge Dredd comics. Karl Urban of... uh... some fame is cast as Judge Dredd and lesser-known actress Olivia Thirlby is cast as Judge Anderson (a character who, like Dredd, has numerous solo stories).
(Thirlby & Urban, and yes, I know Urban doesn't quite look right as Dredd in it)
Anyway, decided to start this topic now as the marketing is starting to ramp up and I saw an image that I had to share, and you can find it here, on the 2000AD tumblr.
I can't help but notice how small Anderson is next to Dredd.
Really, really excited about this film. I cannot wait to see it!

Yup, second and third LOTR and he was Bones in the Star Trek reboot.
He was also in some crap movies Doom, Chronicles of Riddick, Pathfinder so I get your point...

Still, they would have to try hard to be worse than the Stallone movie.

This is the style you mean, yes?
In the comics, it's very much the same as it was. Obviously things will have changed, but the armour of the Judges is basically the same.

Actually, now I look more closely at that picture I can see the badges and shoulder pads are there, just toned down compared to the over-the-top size they use in the comic.
I hope they're going to CG his chin though, it doesn't look big enough .

Ohmigosh ohmigosh ohmigosh! It's Trailer Day in Mega-City One!
Watch the trailer here
It's drokking awesome.
Well, I think stylistically it's based on Dredd with its little flourishes, but it also looks like they've toned it down a lot - it seems much more sensible in what the judges are wearing, and so on. It's different enough to stand on its own and to perhaps distance it from the comics, but recognisable enough for you to know what it is.
But yeah, really excited for this now!

It does look rather splendid, doesn't it?
(Apart from that helmet).
